I'm installing SP2010 Enterprise on AWS EC2. I have downloaded SharePoint and installed it. My problem is getting through the Configuration Wizard.

I'm creating a new server farm.

I'm having problem with "Specify Database Access Account" I think this is because I'm not sure what my exact "DOMAIN\User_Name".

Can someone help me get through this?

I planned a farm on AWS a little while ago. Unfortunately customer didn't move forward with it, but we were going to include a server for active directory. AWS doesn't provide an AD to work with.
